Big Bang Fair 2017

Big Ban Fair 2017On 15 March 2017, the first day of the four day Big Bang Fair at the NEC in Birmingham, twelve Year 9 students travelled to the event with the intention of discovering more about the options available to them should they choose to follow a science career.

Numerous companies and institutions had stands at the event where students could both ask questions and get hands-on experience of different scientific techniques. Additionally there were presentations and talks given throughout the day with the intention of inspiring the young people to think about science in the world around them.

Students also had the opportunity to look at work that had been carried out by their peers in other schools as part of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition.
